If you're talking about Aniplex, sure. They're the reason why pirating is encouraged.

Don't tell me Sony wants to make a live action Dragon Ball Z movie.

Who made the last one ? Was it also Sony ?

They really aren't, most of the time. Anime is normally priced around the same amount as standard TV shows and movies in North America, though only when the shows are sold at places like Wal-Mart. More traditional specialty shops and online retailers like Amazon normally sell them for more, but not by much. Anime normally also has more episodes per set than regular tv shows and the like, or longer running time. Aniplex is the only real offender with $50 4-5 episode BDs and $80 for 7 episodes. Funimation is 12-14 episode sets for around $45-55 and up to around $55-75 for 14-16 episode sets. Sentai has been using cheaper prices lately, with no more than $55 for most sets that are not LEs.
